Because neither project much physically or stuff wise. I remember Chris Welsh commenting how the Lizard would get better overtime because he had not filled out physically yet(Welsh's usual gentle jab at O'brien that the Lizard wasn't nearly ready yet) and would probably gain more velocity and stamina as he got older.
Germano and Moseley both throw in the high 80's, topping out in the low 90's, while the Lizard most likely will throw in the low 90's regularly. It doesn't sound like much, it means alot to their futures as starting pitchers. I just think Moseley/Germano will get shelled in the Bigs.
The Lizard on the otherhand, is 23 and IMO will catch up to the AAA level as the season progresses, improving, growing stronger. By the time 2007 comes around, a 24 year old Lizard will be able to compete on the Major's level. By the time he is 25 in 2008, he could be a serviceable starter. If I were Krivsky, the Lizard could be a nice chip thrown in a deal for a more talented starter.
